Lens reviews for lenses fitting Pentax K10D?

By: hgpuke 5753 days ago
Hi!
I found this site, and it looks very interesting. I am in the process of buying a Pentax K10D, but I am not sure which lens to go with it. I was trying the "lens search" feature of this site, but cannot find the lens mount that Pentax claims the K10D is using. This is what the datasheet states:

PENTAX KAF2 mount compatible with PENTAX KAF2, KAF and KA mount lenses

Can it really be so that there are no lenses with this "KAF2" mount reviewed here?

Thanks,
Hans-Göran

KAF2 is simply the KAF mount with added power contacts to enable operation of power zoom lenses and the soon to be released ultrasonic lenses with the focusing motor in the lens.

All exisitng Pentax K mount lenses can be used. The KA are manual focus but will be fully compatible with all exposure modes. The auto-focus lenses are all compatible be they KAF or KAF2.

The kit lens is the SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 and this is a good all purpose lens of very good quality. The SMC Pentax-DA 16-45mm f4 is much more expensive, but is a better lens if you are making large prints.

Hope that answers your question, if you need any further info just ask!
